the league already did this with the Canadiens by giving them first crack at all the french talent.

I think Gillis did an excellent job up to the Goalie fiasco. He came in and addressed things he thought needed changing and upgrading in management and scouting.

I think the bottom 3 teams should have a signifcant higher chance then anyone else to draft the next superstars.

The Canucks are due to have their turn at the bottom you won't be saying that if they lose the lottery every year.

Lottery changes tanking for McDavid getting harder but wtf is the league trying to do now?

New Jersey is a weird one for me because NJ is just a bridge ride from Manhatten and there are so many people in that area.

Ya I think he is in that group but I like the Jagr comparison a little better because Jagr one a scoring title and was consistently one of the top 5 players when he played.

I don't think Sid is in his caliber I would say he is the tier below the great three.
Commented on August OT Open Thread on Aug 20 2014, 11:25p
The thing with Gretzky is players tried to hit him his entire career and would miss 99.9% of the time.

I don't have all the facts and Bettman has certainly turned the financial issues around for this league.
Commented on August OT Open Thread on Aug 20 2014, 3:58p - 1 reply
ya good points but I wasn't saying he would score 200 points in todays NHL just he would be far better then the next best player in Crosby.

Due to Bettman's stubbornness there are 3 teams in substantial trouble and have been for years.
Commented on August OT Open Thread on Aug 20 2014, 3:52p - 1 reply
The thing is the game is today what it is because these 3 players invented plays prior to the current generation.

the phoenix situation is all Bettman he wants American teams in league over Canadian ones so he does everything possible to make them survive.

According to the article it might not be yet, they may be backing out of the deal

I agree with most of what you wrote and they are excellent points.
Commented on August OT Open Thread on Aug 19 2014, 9:40p
yes the game is different but do you think Crosby and Ovech are in the same class as Gretzky and Lemieux and Orr?

Today's game is about the power play and special teams it's how Bettman wanted to sell the game to the Yankees.

I don't believe this to be the case. I think management is hoping that it is the case.

I would hope he has to earn that spot and one decent year doesn't equate to being a top 6 forward.
Commented on Sedin VS Sedin Sounds Like Fun on Aug 13 2014, 11:46a - 1 reply
Because I think they still need one more top 6 forward?

I think the point others are trying to make is because there are so many holes in stats and the way they are recorded they are of little use.

No need to cover your ass you were totally right in what you said. Depending on the strength of their players some coaches will have their wingers come back to play D instead of centers.
